My 1880 CC NGCMS63DPL TOP 100 vam 5

Post by bhinkle » Sat May 16, 2020 7:53 pm

I was lucky enough, to have recognized the 8 re-punched over 7,
awhile back, on this 1880 cc NGCMS63DPL and won it.
In addition to DPL, it is in an old thick NGC slab and has some
nice toning.
Here are some pictures of the date, below the eagle's right claw
and two more pictures of the rev.
Enjoy, Bert

Wow. Nice super one, and a T-100 to boot! Might only go PL today, can't quite tell from the pics for sure but looks like that could be the case. Still a killer tho, and that reverse! 😍

...Even if it ends up only being a PL by today's tight standards, she's still in a DPL holder! 🥳😎

Nice pick! Great coin as a stand alone and to add the VAM-5 attribution puts it over the top.

Thank you Tom, Bobby, Kurt, Roger and Chris

(..Even if it ends up only being a PL by today's tight standards, she's still in a DPL holder!)

Please don't grade this 1880 CC, by my inexperience in taking pictures.
I don't have a good camera or stand or the good lighting.
I took the obv and rev pictures, with my 'hand held' digital camera and
some how, I got the reverse picture pretty good.
I just now took a picture of the obverse, with my scanner and it shows the
frosty devices, a little better. (below)
If you looked at this coin, in hand, you would agree, that it is graded
correctly, as a MS63DPL or DMPL and it is spectacular..
In my experience back when NGC was using these older thick slabs,
they were a little more conservative, in their grading, in most cases
and the same with the PCGS rattler slabs.
Thanks, Bert
